Taylor Swift’s new album sets UK vinyl sales record

Date: January 28, 2023 Time: 00:47:24

American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has broken another record with her tenth studio album Midnights. Swift became the first female artist to sell more copies of an album on vinyl than on CD since the 1980s. NME writes about it.

Since the release of Midnights, five CD and vinyl editions have been released on digital platforms. In the first week of the album’s vinyl release, Taylor Swift sold 575,000 copies. At the moment, the figure is close to 800 thousand copies.

Midnights has become not only the fastest-selling vinyl release since tracking data began in 1991, but also the fastest-selling vinyl album overall of the 21st century. This is the first time since 1987 that vinyl has sold more copies than CD. Then the best-selling albums were Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” the soundtrack to “Dirty Dancing” and Guns N’ Roses’ “Appetite For Destruction.”

Taylor Swift is set to direct a feature debut for Searchlight Pictures. The original script was written by the interpreter herself.
